With occupancy rates at all-time lows due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fall detection and prevention experts at SafelyYou are hosting a free virtual Summit, OPEN: “The Future of Fall Prevention,” which will feature an important panel discussion about how to retain residents, extend the length of stay and increase move-ins.
Taking place on May 19 from 12-1 p.m. PT, the Summit’s second breakout panel, “Driving Occupancy and Extending Length of Stay by Elevating Standard of Care with SafelyYou,“ brings together Jerry Taylor, Vice President of Operations for National Health Investors; Allison Groves, Director of Clinical Operations for Carlton Senior Living; and George Netscher, Chief Executive Officer for SafelyYou. The session will be moderated by Tom Bang, Chief Strategy Officer for SafelyYou.
The panelists will examine proven examples of how SafelyYou’s fall detection and prevention technology is a true market differentiator. SafelyYou has not only extended the length of stay by 2X but has also been leveraged to drive community move-ins by elevating fall programming. This session will highlight how SafelyYou communities are addressing occupancy challenges by:
- Reducing falls and ER visits
- Elevating standard of care
- Alleviating stress and giving families peace of mind
- Leveraging SafelyYou as a market differentiator
SafelyYou’s Summit Spring 2021 kicks off on Wednesday, May 19 at 10 a.m. PT with a keynote presentation featuring SafelyYou’s CEO George Netscher and COO Shirley Nickels followed by two panel discussions and customer roundtables.
As the country begins to reopen after a year like no other, SafelyYou thought it only fitting to open its very first virtual summit free of charge to all wanting to drive change in senior living.
